    Picked this up today off another member. Waiting on my Savage 12 LRP to arrive, so this will fix the itch until it gets here.
    Needs a new stock, but she's a nice one for sure.

    This stock really isn't great, my Ruger American was stiffer. But the quality is leaps and bounds better.
    Hopefully going to make a trip to sightron Friday to pick up my new Siii, for the lrp. I'll post pics of that whenever it comes

    I built this the other week for a guy. 26 nosler off a savage action. The stock is a choate which is a really great stock for the money. 200 bucks isnt bad. Aluminum v block bedding. It's not a manners or anything.

    A member is sending me a accustock to see if it works, I'm on a budget with this one. If it works, it'll get a foam/tape cheek riser and possibly have my gun Smith bed it. That'll be it

    Which magazine system does this have? Is it the blind mag or detachable? If detachable would you mind posting a pic of the magazine?

    I was looking at these when they ran their last sale but ended up with an FCP-SR.

    The FV has a fixed, non removable mag. Switching stocks so hopefully I'll have a detachable soon

    The recoil lug on these, are tapered... I found out to fit in the accustock, ill need to either grind the sides, down or change the stock... So I just ordered the right recoil lug. Hopefully that'll make it work.
